AMPLIFY D.A.I Turns Up the Volume

AMPLIFY Digital Arts Initiative returns to showcase the ingenious and future-bending new work of 20 women working in the sonic and digital arts

A bold proposal launched in 2018 to connect women-identifying artists working in digital arts and electronic music across the Americas and the UK—AMPLIFY D.A.I returns to MUTEK Montréal to showcase the ingenious and future-bending work of 20 new participants. 

Selected by the British Council, Somerset House Studios and MUTEK, artists from Argentina, Canada, and the UK, join a series of public-facing discursive, exhibition and performance activities during the festival. Enriched by its harnessing of different cultures and experiences, AMPLIFY D.A.I fosters a platform for dialogue on access and equality, while also providing career and networking opportunities—and committing resources to elevate and advance the contemporary and dynamic artistic practices of each cohort. More than 80 women have participated in the initiative, which debuted at MUTEK during the same year the festival first achieved gender parity.

AMPLIFY D.A.I is an initiative of the British Council in partnership with MUTEK Montréal, MUTEK Buenos Aires and Somerset House Studios in the UK. The programme is supported by Canada Council for the Arts and Fundación Williams.
